The Laurie Followell Online Governor's Scholars Program Application Help Center

Each year, Marion County High School juniors have the opportunity to apply to the prestigious Governor's Scholars Program -- a summer residential program designed for the state's most outstanding students. This application is competitive and rigorous. However, MCPS Instructional Coach Laurie Followell provides several supports to help students with their applications including one-on-one editing sessions, group informational sessions, and a host of online resources. Followell also uses the applications from past GSP attendees to help students understand what works best in being accepted. Past GSP attendees consistently hail Followell's guidance as instrumental in their acceptance.

For more information about the GSP application process, students are encouraged to email Laurie Followell.
